It is, and when I went out there I didn't know of or find the handy deer-trail so I was trudging OVER all that 5-8' tall green marsh grass with that stupid pole going perpendicular to the grass instead of parallel - I found myself fighting with the grass the whole way. I was spent by the time "I found" Ground Zero.

... you spend 3 hours on a Friday night googling phrases like cometary panspermia to solve 3 new seldom|seen internet research puzzles.

(then see that dave's already been out to hunt 1 of them)

You go to Puerto Rico and care more about finding a cache NEAR the Bacardi Factory than the free samples AT the Bacardi Factory!

you might be addicted to geocaching if your family is planning an intervention because they think you have some obsession with death 'cause your spending all your free time walking around in cemetaries snapping pictures.

You test drive a new car and decide that you better stop on the test drive and find a cache, (just to ensure it would make a good caching vehicle.) wink


Done that!
Our shopping experience included a must do caching experience.

We picked out a couple of caches near the dealer when we tested out our soon to be new geo-mobile. It worked out fine including GC1FD3Y for the off-road portion. We then traded in our old geo-mobile which (luckily) survived doing the Wisconsin DeLorme Challenge (plus a side trip to Montana).

Before that we had rented a couple of vehicles for caching and test driving purposes. And, yes it did fit in the garage when we brought it home that day!

OR your co-workers leave useless junk they got while cleaning their kids' rooms in your mailbox.

If your 3 year old walks around the house with an old printed cache page saying "Where is it?" as he looks under various pieces of furniture.


Too cute!

You make the niece and nephews find their Easter Baskets by providing them a GPS and the coordinates as they walk into the door at Grammy's house ..

You are trimming the evergreen trees in your yard and you find yourself instinctively looking for a camoed film container hidden somewhere in there.

Your 5 yo grandson (Lil' Echo) thinks that every piece of trash on the side of the road must be a geocache and every path into the woods leads you to more caches.

Don't all paths lead to a cache?

You try to find a way to make your spring raking and yard cleaning into a CITO event. Rolling Eyes

All the paths led to baskets full of Easter Eggs today. Lil' Echo and ET had a great time so did we.
